Umm...can you explain a bit more? I'm having a hard time picturing this/trying to figure out what could be the cause.

Just for clarification, bubble nests aren't always sure signs of health - although in this particular instance I'd say it is if he is eating properly, etc.


The 'yawning' thing is normal, my cute little bettas have always done that, it seems to be a normal among many species of fish, actually:



Woo hoo!!! :D :D :D

BTW, a 45 gallon for one betta and a few snails? I'm glad to see you're providing it with plenty of exploration space and room to stretch its fins. No doubt a considerable upgrade from the cup you purchased him from. :(

I have a tank at work for the secretaries and one of my Black Skirted Tetras does the "yawning" thing..I am always suprised at how big his mouth opens up!
